We recommend Blackhorn 209 powder in our .45 and .50 caliber Patriot muzzleloaders.
While we had great success with Remington STS 209 primers, they are now scarce. Any 209-primer available is a good primer nowadays.
It is crucial to use a standard/magnum 209 primer and not a muzzleloader specific primer with Blackhorn 209.
DO NOT SHOOT SMOKELESS RIFLE POWDER IN OUR RIFLES!
If you are interested in shooting smokeless rifle powder and you have a .45 caliber, contact Mark Woodman at firstname.lastname@example.org
We do not sell Blackhorn 209 or 209 primers, nor do we know where to recommend getting them as that changes daily.
The following are suggested starting loads.
.45 caliber 1-24 twist rifles.
.45 caliber 1-18 twist rifles.
Generally this is for experienced shooters who prefer the faster twist.
.45 caliber 1-20 twist cut rifled barrel.
This barrel is great for full bore bullets that are sized with a smooth sizing die. Fury and Parker offer great 250, 275 and 300 grain bullets for use in this.
If you wish to shoot smokeless powder, please contact Mark Woodman at email@example.com
.50 caliber 1-28 twist rifles.
DO NOT EVER USE SMOKELESS POWDER.
80 to 100 grains by volume of Blackhorn 209 with 275 Parker BE bullets.
These load’s typically offers moa groups, however some shooting may be required to find what your rifle likes.
